Two Sunday’s ago husband and I dated and splurged some on Manilas most fashionable eatery –Spiral at Sofitel Philippine Plaza.
We arrived at Spiral 30 minutes earlier for the dinner buffet so it gave us more time to relax and be ready for the gastronomic adventure waiting in front of us.
Hotel buffets are concept restaurant with multi-cuisine open cooking station. You can choose your liking from Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Indian, Filipino, Italian and more 🙂 .
It was heaven at first sight when I saw this seafood section.
Husband and I started alternately getting our food and indulged on the spread the entire dinnertime.
I skipped the soup and bread station
And started with seafood platter and California maki.
I passed on cold cuts,
And decided for shrimp tempura and asparagus
How can I say no to this prime rib?
And perfectly grilled lamb chops…
A slice of pizza landed on my plate but I consume it right away
Husband and I tried pasta but we find nothing special about this cooking.
There were too many too choose from left and right and because I was having a hard time deciding every time I would make a round, I stick to seafood 🙂 .
And saving room for the dessert station is must!
I sampled that small truffle cake, fruit tart and crème brulee was a treat, an indulgence I may call. It has the right custard base topped with contrasting layers of caramel and burnt.
I cannot pass on the crepe station, so, even if I can already feel my full tummy, hehehe…I had a half serving of mango crepe, which I consume with pistachio ice cream on top.
Husband was busy with his own creations too and I didn’t want to spoil his appetite so I kept photo of my plates only. Nevertheless, I can tell he enjoyed everything 🙂 .
We give in after 3 hours of mouthful serving of the hearty dishes. Burp!
By the way, I got our voucher at 50% off from CashCash Pinoy last year and saved it for our birthday month. It was a real deal!
My only regret about this experience is leaving my DSLR at home (I read some reviews that taking photo of the food and cooking stations are not allowed…). I envy those armed with powerful cameras that night. Probably I need to watch out for more great deals so husband and I can enjoy the best of fine dining.
